All hail the eight million dollar iPad 2...
Scouse decadence guru Stuart Hughes is back, back, BACK!
Before Christmas, we brought you news of a customised iPhone that he’d cobbled together from a dinosaur tooth, which retailed at a cool £40,000. But that was a just a warm-up for Stuart’s latest bespoke electronic product – the blingingest iPad 2 that it’s possible for anyone’s imagination to ever imagine without it exploding inside their heads.
There’s a back case made of 24ct gold alloy (to make it durable) and the Apple logo encrusted with 12.5cts of flawless diamonds. Then there’s more. The front of the case is made from 75 million-year-old Ammolite, the oldest rock on the planet. Plus there’s our old friend the dinosaur again – this time it’s shards of a 65 million-year-old T-Rex thigh bone.
Finally, there’s the central command button – a single cut 8.5ct flawless diamond in a platinum setting, surrounded by 12 outer flawless diamonds. Well worth anyone’s $8 million. Yes, that’s right... EIGHT MILLION DOLLARS.
Our money’s on Donald Trump and P Diddy. Maybe Roman Abramaovich. Probably not Paul Daniels. Oh and here's one of Stuart's earlier adverts - check out those sky-high production values...
